Speedy deletion transferbot

Hello Mdupont, Please do not run any long-running processes on tools-bastion-03. Please use the Help:Tool Labs/Grid instead. I have not killed the process for now (as I realize it needs to run continuously to work correctly), but please move it to the grid as soon as possible. valhallasw (Merlijn van Deen) (talk) 10:29, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the warning, I will get right on it, it might take a day or two. Mdupont (talk) 11:10, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Ok, I tried to start it as a continuous bot. Will see if that works. Mdupont (talk) 00:16, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

It is not working,
    2016-08-19 04:54:29 warn: Too many attempts to restart job 'speedydeletion'; throttling. 

it restarted it 24 times I supposed. What next? ~.bigbrotherrc has

   jstart -N speedydeletion /data/project/speedydeletionwikia/pywikibot-core/

Mdupont (talk) 11:21, 19 August 2016 (UTC) I guess I plan to have it run 1/10 of the day, so maybe start itself like 20 times and finish.

Does transferbot stay running by itself, or does it stop after a given number of pages have been processed? In the latter case, you should probably use jsub with cron to repeatedly submit the job. If it stays running by itself (e.g. by sleeping and then starting over again), jstart is the correct option. valhallasw (Merlijn van Deen) (talk) 18:12, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
oh that is easy, turned it back to while true. so easy. thanks!
